Ok, so an author who wants to have fine control over the drawing buffer size would have to request the desired size and then see that a smaller drawing buffer was allocated. If that size is not good enough, the author can make another attempt at sizing the buffer, hopefully using the returned size as a metric. This could happen over and over as the author tries to find a reasonable buffer size. And the heuristics used might work well on one platform and not on another.
I suppose the above scenario is not too bad. But it would be very nice if we could give the author some clue about the buffer size constraints.
